Dave was awesome to deal with.
+1 on that.

The benefit to this over the Raidbox from Twalcom is you can get your Cruz Tool kit roll into it.

I like that tool box behind the side cases but since I have the stock Vario cases I don't get the fancy mental frame to mount everything to. I took one of those pelican cases about 8 inches long and bolted it the the rear of my licence plate. and bolted my plate the the pelican case lid. It hold most my tools and keeps them clean and dry which is nice when its time to use them and they arn't rusty. I have a small bike pump that I just put where ever it fits and a few tire tools under the stock seat. All works well and still stays clean.

oh and as far as those tubes from agri supply. They had a clearance awhile back for half price. So i bought 3 of them. Great idea they have a nice o-ring that keeps everything dry but I have a hard time trying to find a place to bolt it up. no where really to put it. if that helps. if you have space you can bolt them to the back of the side cases like what many riders do with their MSR fuel bottles but that's about all I've come up with so far.

Is there a standard tool list that most people carry or is it just trial and error? My factory kit is minimal at best.

This site gives you a general idea. I'm putting together a kit like this.

A tool search will yield the result you are looking for, but yes, there are prerequisite tools for the BMW bikes. Not sure how extensive of a kit you might want but a Cruz Tools or Adventure Designs kit might be a good option for you.

Cool thanks. I thought about that spot but I thought it was to close to the rear tire and would have rubbing issues as the suspension flexes. I Guess I'll look more into it.
